Guest news is coming in hot and fast for the upcoming Fan Expo Vancouver (FXV), taking place Family Day Weekend February 15-17, 2020 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West. Chandler Riggs, known for his role as “Carl Grimes” in The Walking Dead (2010-2018) will be making his first appearance at FXV, appearing all three days. He is currently a recurring character on ABC’s A Million Little Things. Joining him will be LeVar Burton, known famous to nerd-kind as “Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge” in Star Trek: The Next Generation and to bookworms for his enduring series Reading Rainbow. He is also known for Roots, and many cameo appearances over the years.
Guest news is set to continue in the coming days as the countdown to FXV continues! Fans can meet their favourite stars at Photo Ops and autograph signings, and see them live on stage during Spotlight Panels.
